The New Coat

Last October, I bought 2 coat patterns from Dear My Kids – The Pea Coat & The Double Breasted Coat. Hmmm… coat patterns – in October – in the southern hemisphere. The thought of making a coat during the heat of summer just does not make sense. But as the cooler months start to approach, [...]

Felt Dumplings

I’ve wanted to make felt dumplings for a little while.¬†We (well, Miss S and I) eat quite a few dumplings in our household. And I thought they would be pretty simple to make – since I knew how to make the real thing, the felt ones should be easy, right? Hmmm… not really. Felt ones [...]
